“People aren’t perfect. Even the people you love.”

Frantic Assembly’s Things I Know to Be True is at its heart a show about the duality of love, at the same time destructive and beautiful. The play follows the Price family over a year of change; after Rosie returns from a year abroad she is eager to return to her memory of a perfect home. She aches for the sense of familiarity and security they bring, however upon returning it becomes obvious that something is off.

As a series of secrets are revealed and Rosie is forced to confront her immaturity and need to grow up, despite her desire not to. At times heart-warming and at times devastating; Things I Know to Be True explores every aspect of love and the grief that must come with it.

On the 13th March we will be holding our Annual General Meeting. At this meeting, we will be voting for our next committee and subcommittees, who will take over the positions in April. If you are considering running for a position, I urge you to look at this power point with an overview of each one:

Also, be sure to chat to our current committee members about the positions. They would be more than happy to talk to you about what they entail!


Edinburgh’s longest running improv troupe are back for another year! After selling out over the 2023 Fringe, the Imps cannot wait to get back to term-time fun onstage. Join them every Friday for an hour of short form improv, based entirely on audience suggestions. New players and new games mean that shows are always different, always funny!

We can’t wait for you to come and have a laugh with The Improverts and celebrate another year of critically acclaimed improv!

Every Sunday 12:00 to 14:00 we do Maintenance where we tidy up the building and make some small building improvements. Everyone is welcome to help, we provide you with snacks and a good playlist.

If you have worked on a show you need to come to maintenance to tidy up after your show. If you do not, you will go into Maintenance Debt. You can clear this by coming to another Maintenance Session or talking to Lewis Eggeling (Theatre Manager). Similarly you will need to staff a show (or two if you did a mainterm) in exchange for other members staffing your show.

You can sign up at https://www.bedlamtheatre.co.uk/admin/staffings

If you have any questions please contact Luca Stier at [email protected]


After Maintenance we have Duty Management (DM) training from 14:00 to 14:30. During this time, we will teach you how to run the building during a show, open and lock up the building, and what to do in case of a fire. Theatre always needs to be at least one DM trained person present when the building is in use, so being DM trained is very helpful for Production Team members!
